Ace Hood Channels His Athlete Mentality on “4th Quarter”
Ace Hood channels his athlete mentality on the new track "4th Quarter," the first offering from his upcoming mixtape, Starvation 5. The three-minute track is produced by The Mekanics and Smash David.
The Florida rapper namedrops several pro athletes throughout the course of the new record. In his first verse, Ace Hood flexes, "Fourth quarter for the win/Kobe Bryant with the spin/Clinton Portis on the rims/Dwayne Wade with the bands."
The infectious, head-bobber of a beat compliments Ace's bars nicely. On verse two, he really goes in, spitting, "Young nigga straight outta Broward/And we came to fuck up some commas/Niggas was sleep, they in pajamas/Wake up the beast, we got a problem/Jump in that water, you see them piranhas/He thinking he balling, I pull up beside him."
But his third verse might be the hottest. Ace raps, "My chick thick as mayonnaise/Now we fucking up the Chevy game/Boy you better not miss the money train/I just treat it like it's Hunger Games/They will never want it as bad as I/We are nothing like them other guys/I just went and shook a hater's hand/Then I had to go and sanitize."
